Great action image, Danny. Great to watch, we saw this race also on Saturday from the viewing platform in the Baltic Centre.

What fun and a great shot of this high speed action, Danny.
Gosh, 1/4000sec. to freeze the action.

Yes Dave,it is the posh folk that do the Grouse shooting,us poor folk do Haggis shooting instead.Not so much shooting really as Haggis do not fly.They roll along the ground and we spear them with a pitch fork.It is not recommended to pursue this sport after having a few drams.It has been known that after the hunt there is a good number of hedgehogs to be seen speared instead.There is also a constant stream of casualties to be seen at the infirmary with pitch fork holes in their feet.It is a much dangerous sport than Grouse shooting I reckon.
Good shot Danny and thank you for giving me the opportunity to advertise this not so well known sport !!

I think you are having us on Mick. I don.t think there is still the sport of Haggis Hunting.I think this was stopped when one of the haggis ran up the kilt of a braw scotsman and some silly sod still tried to spear it with his garden fork. Unfortunately health and safety banned it and now it's gone underground. Fork 'n' Haggis the not so well known sport.

Dashing Danny Brannigan the action man of Northumberland.
I'd like to see you in the cage with Lillian and then we see some dashing, I'm sure.
